Aerial photographs of London during the summer of 2019 by Jason Hawkes

Known for hanging out the side of a helicopter, we've enjoyed seeing Jason Hawkes's aerial photographs before, particularly those of London at night.

Now he's back with some fresh shots over the UK's capital during the summer months. Last week alone, he took to the skies on five separate occasions: once at dusk, once at night and a few times at dawn.

His resulting aerial shots reveal a sleepy London – one not quite awake, in many cases, or just unwinding after another busy day. In other instances, it looks as though the streets are empty as Londoners escape to Europe for a much-needed break.

Shot whilst hanging out of the door of an AS355 helicopter, Jason Hawkes’s iconic images are normally taken from heights of 750 feet up to around 2,600 feet over London, although occasionally he has to get extra exemptions to get lower or higher. Discover more of his work at jasonhawkes.com.
